At the dawn of the nineteenth century, while France was entering a revolutionary period which established a troubled and unstable Republic, the United Kingdom continued to live under a parliamentary monarchy that was conservative and undemocratic. The world witnessed the birth of a new State: United States of America. This birth was not made easily, but after a vicious war of independence against England and a difficult compromise on a common constitution. Indeed, the first association brought together former colonies in 1777 and took the form of a confederation. It was ultimately the determination of the delegates of the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 which allowed the adoption of a Federal Constitution, thus reconciling the desire to rally some respect for local peculiarities which are attached the other. It came into effect on March 4, 1789. Inspired by the English liberal culture, the scheme was very innovative. It was a Federal Republic with three powers, and each one was associated with a specific organ, and was carefully separated. At its inception, the Federal Republic of the United States was not a democracy.
